"Culture and Privilege in Capitalist Asia" shows that the cultural reconfiguration of domestic and international relations around Asia's new rich has often been characterized by tension and division, and by an elevated status for the new rich themselves and the societies in which they live and work.
In this latest volume in the "New Rich in Asia Series" the authors examine the cultural reconfiguration, consumer behavior, economic success and cultural status of the new rich. The book includes case studies from Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, India and China that challenge the narrow political-economic and cultural-determinist approaches that have so far dominated the literature on capitalist development in Asia.
